Changes in Student Behavior on Social Networks

Jana Miková, Renata Kárníková




Social networks are an everyday part of university students’ lives. They use them for various activities related to school, but mainly for personal life. On social networks, it is possible to share your feelings, your hopes, your life wins, and losses, as well as opinions and beliefs. This is done with the help of posts, comments, photos, videos, and other functionalities of various types of social networks. In our preliminary research, we focused on sharing photos and videos from everyday life. It was attended by 114 respondents from the Faculty of Education, Palacký University in Olomouc in the Czech Republic. The findings show that Facebook is the most used social network. The most common activity for students is sharing photos. None of the monitored activities showed a statistically significant difference in the frequency of activities between the period before and during the Covid-19 pandemic.
